Apple is always in news due to iPhone, this time leaks are suggesting the tech-giant is planning to launch it’s a cheaper phone, iPhone SE 2. Apple scrapped the production of iPhone SE series, but the decision was not well received.
A recent report by Digitimes hints that Apple is working on a smaller and cheaper iPhone. The model is rumored to have 5.42 inches and experts are guessing it to be iPhone SE 2.
iPhone SE 2 to be launched in 2020?
The leaked report says that Apple is working on 3 new handsets to be launched in 2020. The 5.42-inch device is speculated to be iPhone SE 2, while the 6.06 and 6.67-inch seem to be updated iPhone XR and iPhone XS Max.
The phones will have Samsung’s Y-Octa display or LG’s TOE display, which means they will not be much cheap. Compared to iPhone SE which had a 4-inch screen, it will be bigger.
Along with that, they are supposed to have an OLED screen, which further suggests that the device will be premium, yet affordable. If everything goes right, Apple will launch iPhone SE 2 in 2020.
Is Apple trying to enter mid-range market?
Apple tried to enter the low range market by launching iPhone SE, but things didn’t go as planned. Apple had to end the whole production of iPhone SE 2 in 2018 because of low sales.
The primary reason users buy Apple products because it shows their class among people. Also, performance and a smooth run is the second main reason and SE series failed in both departments. Apple has now revised its strategy and is trying to label it as a Mid-range device.
The most selling phones belong to Mid-range category, on which Apple had an eye from a long time. However, Apple will try to market it as an affordable premium device.
